Hello.

I am booked on a BMC Ready to Rock course next weekend and I would like some suggestions for places to stay.

The main websites highly recommend The George Hotel. Any good?

Bye

No idea about the George, but I'd recommend camping at North Lees at the foot of Stanage, they now also have camping pods.

I haven't camped since school.

There's 2 Yha hostels nearby?

In reply to Mountain Spirit:

A pod might be a good way to get back into it, then ... sort of halfway towards camping?

(Also, if you can't find anything suitable in Hathersage itself, consider alternatives near any of the other Hope Valley railway stations?)

Do you mean this coming weekend, or the one after?

Either way, it's pretty short notice, so you might have to go with wherever in Hathersage (if that's where the course is)has a vacancy.

In reply to slab_happy:

The one after...

It is pretty short notice....

The course and course provider are based in Hathersage.

In reply to Wingnut:

I agree about the pods are other places in Hope Valley.

Little John pub. Great place with basic kind of bungalow'esque things you can rent. Friend used them last week.

The Plough is only 10 minutes walk from the station in Hathersage, is probably the nicest pub round there and has rooms. This is worth checking out.

There are many more places to stay in Castleton, which is only 20 mins bus ride away.

otherwise, why not see if you can stay in the same hotel you were in last time you came to Sheffield, and then get the bus or the train out to Hathersage? I think the hotel you stayed in is only a few minutes walk from bus and train stations

Hi,

We've stayed at The George many times but not in the last year or so.

Its 3 star rated so its not cheap to start off with. The last time we stayed they threw in a compulsory 20% service charge at the point of payment, my wife took offence and hence we haven't been since.

However its  rooms and food are what you would expect and its opposite "Outside"

As has been said there are plenty of cheaper alternatives and an even more upmarket  relatively new 4 star hotel in Hope only a few minutes down the road.

The Millstone Country Inn in Hathersage, up the road a bit from the centre, is my favourite watering hole thereabouts. Stayed there too a few times. Comfortable rooms. The food was good but not eaten there recently.

I've stayed in the Scotsman's Pack in Hathersage. Good food for the evenings and the rooms are fine.

I think it is fully booked.

For £100 a night it better be!

In reply to Mountain Spirit:

Considering those hotel prices and the short notice, would a camper van be an option? A quick google came up with £230 for Fri-Mo, pickup/return in London.

How far is Hope from Hathersage?

There seems to be decent places to stay there.

It's about 3-4 miles. There are trains and buses (7 min/19 min), you should be able to download the timetables.

I have found that Millstone Country Inn and The Little John have rooms for the previous night ie the 5th April.

Ok, hope you have a great weekend with good weather. Let us know how it went - all the best!

I walked passed Millstone Edge this evening!

In reply to Mountain Spirit:

Sounds like it's not raining then! How's the hotel?

Mountain Spirit - on 05 Apr 2019
In reply to McHeath:

Lovely. Very cosey! I have photos of my room.

This is the place to stay if you want to climb Time to Tea, Embankment routes, Masters Edge, Great Arete and Edge Lane.

Would you recommend it too, having stayed there now?

Mountain Spirit - on 08 Apr 2019
In reply to brianjcooper:

Yes I would recommend it....

One thing I didn't know is that the water in the bathroom sink is drinkable.....

I had a full English with poached Eggs Ali g with cereal breakfast. The night before I had White Bait for starters and a medium to well done steak in black peppers for mains. 

It depends where you want to climb.

Oooh I feel cheated, I've used him twice and both times he's not been there!

(Joking: While he was not there his comms were still great and it's a very nice place to stay)
